Decapitators - Crystal Math

Decapitators - Crystal Math
Decapitators is the eventual product of a year long trip to Mexico by two South Coast NSW friends. With no intentions for the music beyond writing songs on cheap guitars to pass the time, the jams quickly became anthems of the trip, and subsequently sentimental souvenirs. After some years of reprising these tunes every weekend upon reunion, Ivan (rhythm guitar and lead vocals) and Thorne (bass and backup vocals) began to dream of audiences beyond their immediate drunken social circles, and recruited two friends, one old (Matt - lead guitar and backing vocals) and one new (Tom - drums) to bolster the ranks.

Upon progression from duo to band, Decapitators have spent the last year forging a cult like following in the dingier parts of Sydney's inner west for their dark and harmonically intense brand of rock. Dynamic, eerie, playfully dissonant and shrouded in breathy mystery, the now Sydney four-piece are preparing to release their debut single "Crystal Math" in late June with a video and a few select tour dates to accompany.

About this track...

Drenched in delay and floating anguish, Crystal Math is a dynamic dancey guitar onslaught animating the contradictions and inner workings of a mind in trauma. The song sees layers leave and return to create space for vocalist Ivan Wowk to describe a tortured mental state, and then enhance his vocal depiction with jumps in his volume and manic guitar dissonance.
